Lunch Bunch Conversation: The Parent Trap!
On April 27 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., MassTAPP will host a “lunch bunch”, or peer networking call, for communities across the state that are interested in learning more about how others are planning to communicate prevention messages to parents of teens as we head into prom & graduation party season.
Research is clear that parents wanting to keep their older teens safe during spring party season should not offer to buy alcohol & host parties at their homes. So how do we communicate that message in a supportive way that gives parents a clear sense of how to communicate expectations and set boundaries with their teens? What outreach are you doing or planning in your community this time of year? How are you getting the word out to parents? We want to hear from YOU!
Lunch Bunches are NOT webinars! They are informal opportunities to connect with your colleagues across the state around a particular topic, so come prepared to talk about your coalition work and listen to others share what they’ve been doing. Of course, feel free to eat your lunch during the call—but please mute your line when chewing… ;)
Participants will have the opportunity to share successes and discuss challenges in communicating effective prevention messages to parents. Registration will be capped at 15 people to allow for a more intimate discussion, so register now!
After you register, if at all possible, please send a photo of yourself to Ben Spooner at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll include everyone’s picture in our “virtual room!”
So, what do the families pictured above have in common? They want to keep their kids safe and out of trouble!
